The roots of local cuisine

It's far. It's (really) expensive. But it does worth trying. The restaurant is located beyond Pampulha, so if you are going to visit that region or even going later to a match in the soccer stadium, you can extend your visit to the restaurant. Otherwise, be prepared to go far from Savassi or... read more

Our friends in the city recommended the Xapuri restaurant as a local cuisine. We liked the food and the ambience. I guess you should go to taste the local country food It is overpriced, a little over the average for the city.

People will there because it is situated in a house that looks like a typical farm in the state of Minas Gerais. So is for families on special occasions or business. Ok, the appearance is good. But I go the restaurant for food. It´s expensive and high fat and calorie food. Vegetarians or people on a diet stay away. As... More

This was the second time we went to Xapuri and we enjoyed both meals very much. They are located some distance away from downtown in a residential area. The place looks more like a country home than a restaurant, which adds to the character. Traditional regional food is not really sophisticated but it is hearty and delicious. Xapuri provides a...

This excellent Brazilian restaurant is located in Pampulha, quite a distance from any of the major hotels in Belo Horizonte, but it is definitely worth the price, and the trouble of getting there. It is beautifully situated in the near-countryside, and you will feel a million miles away from Belo. Bring a translator, or learn some Portuguese, because we could... More

Fabulous Mineiro cuisine served under a thatched roof. Everything was delicious, especially the the meats, they have live music. If you're willing to try the Comida Mineira, Xapuri it's the place to go. You won't regret.

It is admittedly the best traditional food restaurant in town, with good service. The food is really excellent and true to the roots of the cuisine of Minas Gerais. Exactly why is overfilled on the weekends. But there's a place to wait for a table and meanwhile, eat and drink starters. The room is spacious and simple, resembling a kind... More
